The thoroughly delectable Lamborghini Aventador is making its big screen debut in next year's hugely mouth-watering Batman flick, The Dark Knight Rises.

The V12-powered Lamborghini Aventador was snapped by an internet forum on the set of the new Bat film wearing Gotham plates, continuing Bruce Wayne's love affair with the famous Italian brand. Don't forget, he drove a Murcielago Spyder in 2005's Batman Begins, and then moved on to a Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 in The Dark Knight.

Now that Lamborghini no longer builds the Murci', well, he had no choice but to move up to the Aventador. This was the correct decision, because the V12-engined Lamborghini is rather smashing. Find out what happened when James drove three of the blighters in Italy.

And then, engage in polite and reasoned discussion below and let us know if the Aventador was indeed the right choice, or if Bruce Wayne should be driving something else.
